The School of Mechatronic Systems Engineering (MSE) at Simon Fraser University (SFU), located on unceded Coast Salish Territory - the traditional territories of the Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw), Tsleil-Waututh, Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm), and Kwikwetlem First Nations - is actively building a diverse, inclusive community and invites applications for a Teaching-Stream Faculty.
SFU has ranked as Canada’s number one comprehensive university for 12 of the past 13 years by the Maclean’s University Ranking Guide. SFU has three unique campuses in Burnaby, Surrey and Vancouver. The Surrey campus houses SFU’s novel and cutting-edge initiatives in mechatronics, sustainable energy, computing science, neurotechnology, digital technology, and entrepreneurial programs. Conveniently located within the downtown core of the City of Surrey, the second largest city in British Columbia, SFU’s Surrey campus is growing rapidly as a major education, research and innovation hub. MSE is determined to drive Canada’s innovation in manufacturing, bio-mechatronics, energy, and intelligent systems as one of the leading schools in the country. MSE provides unique education and research opportunities at the intersection of mechanical, electrical, system design and computer engineering.
We invite applications for a continuing teaching faculty position at the rank of Lecturer. We welcome applications from talented educators interested in growing their career in developing and teaching courses in areas relevant to mechatronics in general and preferably including the fields described below. The successful candidate will report to the Director of the MSE School.
